All national health organizations recommend eating five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables each day to promote good health and reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. Fruits and veggies contribute to good health because they contain vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber and other essential nutrients. Most are low in fat and calories, are high in fiber, and contain no cholesterol. As an added bonus, choosing fruits and vegetables in place of high-fat foods as part of a healthy diet, may make it easier to control your weight.

The maximum homestead exemption on real estate owned by qualified persons has been set at $34,000 for the 2011 and 2012 tax periods. The 2011-12 exemption reflects a $300 increase over the 2009-10 exemption of $33,700. The amount of the homestead exemption is adjusted every two years in accordance with KRS 132.810 to compensate for changes in the purchasing power of the dollar. The exemption provided state and local property tax savings of about $155 million for more than 399,000 elderly or disabled Kentuckians during the 2010 tax year.
